    Me either, except if I understand one part, part of my text message will pop up on my screen, like a one line text but it dissappears as fast as it pops ups so I can't even read it. Now on my S8+ you had time to hit the reply and answer it but not on the Note 8! I'm thinking about getting Handcent again I really liked that messaging app.
    That's probably because you have Edge lighting enabled... I think when you have that notification on it goes away pretty quickly

    I've discovered that Aqua Mail no longer handles things the way it used to between my gmail and desktop and the app. Now have to delete on device after deleting on desktop since it doesn't sync the change, which means twice the work for each item. also, things I move to folders on my desktop now have to be hidden on AM since that no longer works either. it was so much better before. I probably won't use it at all on my N8 now. I have enough work already, AM. thanks. none of the other apps are even remotely appealing. I used Mail Droid before and paid for the pro version. to use it now I have to pay again for the pro version. nice and also not happening.

    Don't know what's wrong with your settings but Aquamail syncs just fine for me. If I read email on computer it is then marked read on Aquamail, and vice versa.

    Must be "Carrier Specific" as it's missing on that page on my AT&T Note 8, as is the "Emergency Alerts" line!
    I have both and I'm on Verizon. I think no matter what, every phone should have the emergency alerts.

    holy merde! it now takes writing a number down and going to settings and adding the number by hand, in order to block it. who came up with that brilliant move? that's why I have a N8, but I shouldn't have to write the number down when it's right there on the screen. they took away the option to block from the area where delete is and you can only select and not copy. so so dumb. this alone might make me return it. wow. so retarded.

    One thing that I don't like I'm not sure if this was on the S8 Plus or not but I don't like how it makes you choose a default app some things I like to you have the choice each and every time :\
    That's an easy one.

    Settings
    Apps
    Default apps
    Default apps selection

    Now you can choose again!

    SETTINGS / DISPLAY / SCREEN ZOOM & FONT scroll down to FONT STYLE.

    Previously you could download a 3rd party app to instal and use fonts of your choice. They stopped this when they started charging for fonts. Now everyone's using comic friggin sans on their samsung phones.
    Thank you!

    No you don't, go to your recent call list go to the number you want to block, tap on it go to details then edit and tap on 3 dots top right and block number comes up...... Voila!

    That's incorrect again. Holy Merde. You seen to have more problems than anyone else.
    You block calls on this phone as before. You do not need to copy and re-enter as you describe.
    EDIT: See post above me with info.

    are you with Sprint? when I go to the recent calls list all I can do is select and then either filter, delete, show messages, total call time, or go to settings and type it in to block it. can't even add it as a contact from there. ridiculous and so broken.

    not on my phone. I know how to block calls. that option is not available to me, or apparently Tmobile, because I used their instructions to find out what to do because the option isn't there.

    and, may I add, you are rude!

    When I ask Bixby "Why did the note 7 battery explode?" it suddenly stops and sends me to the battery status of my phone. It acts like I asked about note battery life. I tried it several times and it kills any further input once I say note 7 battery.

    If I go into details and click on the 3 dots, I have the option to block a number.

    The problem you're having isn't a Sprint thing. I have Sprint & can block numbers from the recent calls menu. Click the contact that called, Details, Menu button, Block Number.

    No, I'm with Verizon.

    If I click on the number in Recents, I see 3 choices: Call, message, and Details. I click details, and the upper right of the screen shows 3 dots next to "Share". Block calls is one of the options when I click on the dots.

    thank you. well, I can't test it right now, but if that's the case, it's a pain to go to a different place to block, but at least it's doable and I don't have to record it first. it was so much easier right there in the main menu on the call log screen menu next to delete, now called recents.
